Rob Ford, Mayor of Toronto. Has anyone in the media looked at his policies?

Politics / Canada Nov 22, 2013 - 07:54 AM GMT

By: Jonathan_Davis


Something has niggled me about the Rob Ford story, without coming to my consciousness until now.

I saw a media bod tweeting about him pejoratively. HAHA How funny. What a laughing stock Ford is etc

And it came to me.

Swearer. (Who isn’t?)

Charlie sniffer (Who hasn’t, in power?)

Drunkard (Who in Parliament is sober?)

And that’s the point, he’s a brash and full on and he’s done some things more associated with The Bullingdon Club – perish the thought OUR NATIONAL leaders would EVER do any of the above…

But did our so-called news media ever actually look at his policies???

We’ll get to that in a moment. Now, it has been put to me that he isn’t in the news because of his policies. Fair point.

Except that’s exactly the point. Why the Hell is our media – our so called best news media in the World [Don't make me laugh!] – selling us his antics? Why don’t they tell us the News?

So, he’s the Mayor of a major City. So, he’s the 100,000th most powerful person in N America. Yet he makes news all over the World.

Do you see where I’m going with this now? WHAT IS THE MEDIA UP TO? Why is it spending so much time on this guy?

Well, he’s easy meat. He has no resources to stop the show. Most importantly, he’s political porn. It’s not news. It’s the Sun / News of the World idea of journalism. IT ISN’T NEWS when there’s so much other shit going on. IT IS WHAT THE MEDIA WANT YOU TO SEE. Perish the thought they should focus on NSA or JP Morgan or Venezuela. No, no. Instead what they want you to see is a fat, ebullient, drunk City Mayor. FFS!!!

He’s not my cup of tea. But but but.

I see his policies are about budget cuts and stopping local monopolies. Are you getting it yet? Whenever you buck the system, you better watch out. Do not make a bad move because THEY will pounce. They will use every (normally but not exclusively by any means) legal means at their disposal to bring you down. So what’s new? You Couldn’t Make It Up. Well, the likes of Orwell did.

From time to time media folk call me and ask me to rant live or in the press.  JD in the media.

I don’t buy hype.  I don’t believe it’s the end of the world but I do believe, within a generation, the West will have no welfare state.  The maths don’t lie.  We’re toast.  It’s obvious if you think about it.
